The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have launched their new campaign to end stigma around mental health. The Heads Together campaign will see them working in partnership with inspiring charities to change the national conversation on mental wellbeing.
Heads Together aims to change the national conversation around mental health and to ensure that people feel comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing, feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times, and that stigma no longer prevents people getting help they need.
The campaign launch had a festival feel and showcased the innovative work of the Heads Together charity partners who have achieved so much in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges. The Heads Together team covers a wide range of mental health issues that are close to The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry’s passions. They are:
• Anna Freud Centre
• Best Beginnings
• CALM – The Campaign Against Living Miserably
• Contact (a military mental health coalition)
• The Mix
This is an amazing opportunity for charities to work together to challenge stigma, break down barriers and make a lasting difference.
